The Sackett Family Association have a shared interest in this research. Since you wrote, the 1911 census has been published and Edward Frank, aged 3, was then living in Margate with his widowed mother Ellen Sackett and a sister Frances, 7 (probably a half-sister as Ellen was stated to have been married for 5 years). I am working on the theory that Ellen was the same as "Helen Elizb (aka Ellen) Sackett" who died aged 74 in 1946 and was buried at St Pancras Cemetery. I have not yet identified Edward Frank's parents. Would appreciate whatever additional information you may have.
